    Hi,

    I have been using Zero Defex 1X Pure Purple DVD-R's for the last year or two (had a big supply!) and now its time to get some more media.

    I have only found one or two UK retailers that can get these now, and they are charging quite a lot for them. I really like these DVD-R's as I have NEVER had a bad one.

    My DVD-R drive is a Toshiba SD-R5002 which I thin is actually a 2X burner?

    Do you think http://www.cd-rmedia.co.uk/cgi-bin2/details.pl?id=zeroxtre4x&productadd=zeroxtre4x qould be ok if I just burnt a 1X? Not really interested in burning any quicker to be honest, just want reliable/quality DVD-R's.

    Cheers :)

    According to your link the media you're proposing to use is Ritek G05. Which can be burnt @12x

    They want £0.38 per disc.
    Same G05 @£0.26 ,, ,, http://www.rambox.co.uk/index.php

    But will that media be the same or better quality than the ones I have had in the past? And, will the higher speed media work with my drive?

    Ritek G04 is considered by many including myself, to be a first class medium.
    It will burn at all speeds up to and including 4x.

    you are proposing Ritek G05 with a max speed of 12x.

    to burn at 1x, for what reason?

    It should be excellent and again we're back to G04 which is a deep purple colour.

    further down the page is a thread by agent-k about successfully burning G04 @8x I may try that later.

    Welcome to AfterDawn, superdon, and happpy burning.

    (edit and'after-thoughts)Don't worry to much about burning at 1x, most reasonable media will give you a better copy at a slower speed.
